Overview
This exclusive historic walking tour highlights the essential streets of downtown Charleston and highlights many trailblazing women worth remembering. While strolling down the charming streets and hidden alleys of the French Quarter and South of Broad with Travel Writer and Licensed Tour Guide, Jill Paris, you'll be privy to the secrets of local characters and learn about the southern culture through heartfelt tales, not lectures. You can almost hear the desperate plea of captured lady-pirate Anne Bonny pleading for her life; badass women abolitionists, writers, artists breaking down barriers; a young girl-spy's quick-thinking cool under pressure; a pioneering preservationist; a female ghost's sad story; and an African American leader worthy of her own national holiday. Let's face it. Girls rule. Highlights * Plenty of time to take Instagram-worthy snaps * Tour covers History, Culture, Architecture, Plants & Flowers, and more * Tour starts and ends next to convenient parking

Jill is such a friendly tour guide and very knowledgeable about Charleston history. She allowed us time to take pictures with all the gorgeous landmarks. Jill personalized our tour to what we wanted. For locals, we learned details about our own city we never knew about.
